Some of the solutions for Project No. 1

For the first project, I really wanted an open-ended assignment so that I could get a feel for the students' talents, abilities and interests. I made a general problem and stressed repetition and pattern with a little "rule of thirds" thrown in along with general design principles. Balance and harmony (the idea that the images held together) were discussed. Of course, drawing skills - convincing 3D images, gray tones, individual styles - were the main considerations. The artists' names are visible when you click on an image to enlarge it. Above is a study of stools on the counter - can you see/feel that one is wood and the other metal? Below is the artist's grandmother with her cup of coffee. Above is an example of an art student's preference for picture books! Below the artist shows her interest in fashion.
Below notice how the material contrasts with the skin of the model's back.
